Kaduna Polytechnic has suspended a head of department for academic corruption. The Unnamed lecturer is said to have taken money from students and allowed them to have their scripts after examination so as to copy answers from the making scheme.


Kadpoly rector Idris Bugaje disclosed this in interview in school. Bugaje who took office last October introduced  the policy and transparency Unit [PTU]. The unit, he said helps to improve the system on a continuous basis as well as check both academic and financial corruption, which he said has eaten deep into the fabrics of the polytechnic.

According to him, the unit also checks exam malpractice. We have discovered a lot of malpractices going in the system. Lecturers including heads of departments collecting money from the students and allowing them to have their scripts after examination so as to copy from the making scheme in order to get an ‘A’.

One HOD has already been; suspected for that and he is been; investigated, his case will go to the governing council very soon.


We have also had other cases corruption, we are; investigating at the moment including certificate forgery, even though not only Kaduna Polytechnic is; affected but there are some people here who are experts in forging certificate from anywhere in the world; they use computer technology, scan and change the names.
